Honda has launched in Europe the 2023 SH150i, its 157cc premium city scooter, which arrives with new colors and graphics, but keeping the mechanical set and design of the previous model, to remain one of the best option in the segment.
One of the highlights of the SH150i is its four-valve eSP+ engine with Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) and Idling Stop. Thus, this scooter is capable of reaching up to 44.7 km/L.
In addition, the model has a flat floor and a 28L of under seat storage, capable of holding a full-face helmet and more objects, making small day-to-day purchases much easier.
